New beginnings!

The Brookhaven Arts and Humanities Council is pleased to announce a wonderful opportunity for our membership. Beginning in July 2009 the Phoenix Gallery of Bellport will be run as a cooperative gallery under the management of the BAHC.

BAHC members are invited to visit the Phoenix Gallery and consider joining the current members of the cooperative to hang work there on a regular basis. Once the current Phoenix members have had a chance to renew, membership will be available for BAHC members to sign up on a monthly, bi-monthly, semi- annual or yearly basis and will be open to our membership on a first come first served basis.

The BAHC plans to maintain an office at the Phoenix Gallery and to keep the gallery open Wednesday through Friday from 11am to 5pm and weekends until 7pm. In addition, the BAHC will hold workshops, classes and musical events at the gallery both during the week and on some weekend evenings.

The Phoenix Gallery will not replace our current gallery at Bald Hill, but we hope that it will become an integral part of our visual arts program.

For further information, please contact the BAHC office at 451-9070.
